The Duchess of Cambridge may be a royal, but when it comes to recycling her wardrobe, she's really just like the rest of us. And while Duchess Kate has re-worn ensembles on numerous occasions, there's one notable accessory she's had for a whopping 14 years: a pair of boots.


Retailing for £475 (about $642), the long tassel boot by Penelope Chilvers is handmade of vegetable-dyed leather with a rubber sole. As Kate has proved, the boots are versatile enough to wear for every type of occasion.
